    Dark Ark is the kind of series that I can just see how expansive and intriguing it could be. I can easily envision dozens of issues just in this time period before it shifts forward over the millennia into something even more based on the characters here. Cullen Bunn is definitely enjoying this particular snapshot in time with what's going on and it leaves me wanting much more of it and the bigger picture. And it definitely has me wanting to see Juan Doe explore more of it as this is just massively well done on his part to give it such a rich and intriguing look with its designs and colors. I can't get enough of it and hope for some really slick hardcover glossy works some day. Read Full Review

    This issue was a little confusing and this wasn't helped at times by the similarity in appearance of the vampire hoards. Likewise the character depictions of Shrae's clan and the human inhabitants tend to look quite similar. There is a slight sense of this issue stretching out aspects of the story that probably could have been dealt with in the previous issue. That said, with the angels descending on the vessel for the next issue I'll definitely be tuning in to see where Shrae's journey goes from here. Read Full Review

    Dark Ark #4 is a fun read with some interesting characters. Shrae and Kruul do a lot for the book with their respective gravitas. The art is rough and visually confusing, even if it does have some decent panels scattered throughout. Unfortunately, the art is dire enough that my recommendation of this book is tentative. If you can look past the aesthetic mess for the fun occult themes, then I can recommend it to you. Bear this in mind should you run across it at your local comic shop. Read Full Review
